Yeah, I'm still getting around to posting all the good stuff but well it's been difficult :,(. Do you mean the gifts? If so I prefer to keep them on the blog since they were made for followers on my blog, so if you are following me you probably have a gift over there:)

Here's a Creeper inspired by the ones VeroMan made, hope you like it.

Woow, such a long time since I post in my thread. That project's done and... It sucked!
but here's some new stuff hope you like. I have a lot of new things but well my computer crashed and I lost 75% maybe more of my work so I have a new computer and a new folder and new art for you guys and gals to see. Hope you like.

PS: If a mod by some measure stops by, I have a question. Is there any way of changing the title of my thread?

Let's start with a banner I did for a review of Minecraft ( I have never played minecraft but the whole creeper concept seems so awesome.

Welcome back! It really sucks when your computer crashes. The same happened to me last december.

I'm not a mod, but you can't change the title of your thread. The only thing you could do is starting a new fresh thread with a more suiting title. But you should ask a mod about it, so he can also lock your old one.

Let's start with a banner I did for a review of Minecraft ( I have never played minecraft but the whole creeper concept seems so awesome.

Looks nice. The green in the background however looks a little too plain, since the creepers in Minecraft have some kind of texture made of different tones of green.

I'm really glad you like it. I think it's the best banner I've done so far. It just looks so cool. I appreciate the critic on the background but I won't change it cause it's really old and since it was for a website and the review is already up there's really no point in fixing it now.

But I could use some critic on something I'm working on now.
It would be really appreciated.

Dude, I lost all of my files for that! It sucks, I'm trying to get my files back from a friend of mine that backed my computer up but I haven't seen him in a while when I get that stuff back. I'll start working on the animation again and hopefully finish it this time.

Recently I started doing an illustration a day using a random prompt from a random website. This is the first illustration, using the prompt "Teeth", not very proud of it, but we gotta start somewhere. Currently I'm working on a new one, I'll post some images of it as it progresses I would love some feedback on that, so if you have anything to say, I would love to hear it :)

As promised, here's what I'm currently working on. Today's illustration, sprouting from the word "Hat". Tell me what you think, any comment, will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Here you go, the colored image. I'm having overall with it. I'll add some texture to it tomorrow but overall today's image is done. I would love some feedback, and since tomorrow I'm going to be working on it a bit more, I wouldn't mind jumping back in it and fixing what you think should be fixed.

I almost wrote condescending put could be interpreted as heavily tongue-in-cheek something. Nah.

Great Introduction to Anatomy (major muscle groups) and proportions too I guess. Made by the who does thepunchlineismachismo, so she's got beef downpat, see?

Some good stuff up there, have a look. Redrew your character using some bullshit tactics of my own.

Thanks for all those links man, really great stuff. I redid a couple of things I wasn't happy with, and used your image as reference on a couple of areas I needed to re shade. Thanks for the feedback. I'm done with this image, now it's on to the next :)

If you're like me some days you wake up wanting to draw a beast, today is one of those days. I'll be refining the image throughout the day and would love some feedback on it.

Read the Dota2 Character Design Valve posted, and I wanted to try that whole gradient from top to bottom thing. Inked and added flats, I should be adding shading soon. Hope you like it. Any feedback will be truly appreciated.

Loving the feeling the gradient gives to the overall image. I'll start using that technique from now on. Enjoy. As always, any comments would be greatly appreciated.

I'm tired of the Goddamn dragon by now but if I want to improve I gotta fix those mistakes and stick through to the end.
